The Reconciling Wisdom of God
Reframing the Doctrine of the Atonement
Adam J. Johnson Michael F. Bird
OverviewIn The Reconciling Wisdom of God: Reframing the Doctrine of the Atonement, Adam Johnson, already a leading scholar of the atonement, considers God's redemptive work in Christ through the atonement as an act of God's infinite wisdom.
In making this crucial turn, Johnson is able to speak to proponents of the various atonement theories and move the discussion forward in a new direction, grounded in the truth of God's infinite wisdom. Genuinely reframing the debate around the atonement, The Reconciling Wisdom of God is a must-read for students of the atonement.
